Tokyo Autoshow 2005


The Frankfurt Motor marks the world premiere of After CSS (Frankfurt 2003) and Triathlon Race Car (Geneva Endo is the third concept car by ED2, Toyota’s European studio – all designed within the of the Vibrant Clarity design which now underpins all Toyota

The design concept for Endo as its starting point, the city Urban areas form an difficult challenge for automotive and city planners – shortage of emissions and traffic congestion all the city less inviting but still demand personal Endo is an urban-friendly solution intends to address some of problems.

Its compact dimensions and low weight allow a better use of and low emissions, while simultaneously four passengers in comfort and additional luggage space. is short, at 3 metres long, but (1.52 m) and wide (1.69 m) to ample interior space. Its versatility and modularity provide its with solutions that improve their everyday journey.

The designers were within the ‘Vibrant Clarity’ philosophy which is enabling to take a new direction towards more animated models now and in the These models will out from the mainstream and help Toyota’s new global identity. which suggest Vibrant are and Engaging; while Clarity is by words such as Clear, and Simple.

There are four which come together to Vibrant Clarity, being clearly expressed in Endo: P – A – Architecture S – Surface S – Special The proportions of Endo are specific to its – with maximised width and the ideal urban length. the proportions are optimised for four

The architecture of Endo is clear and with the intersection of its two main the upper cabin which is in shape and the lower free-form which creates a more protective base. The surface is and tense, highlighted by the dramatic shoulder line to promote a hi-tech image. The special of Endo are in its interior versatility and technology features.

In keeping the compact philosophy, getting in and out of has been greatly improved by the use of a two-link hinge system for the doors that allows a opening in confined spaces.

this is an important factor in the design, which can be easily and closed even when in tight spaces.

The predominant of the instrument panel is the large screen that spans the width of the car. The size an unparalleled ease of use and delivers a IT image. In addition to the meters, audio, air conditioning and rear functions, this display can feature user-defined information as e-mail, internet, with individual customized settings.

The can also change the background of the screen and its illumination is reflected on the door trim, creating a interior ambience. The large roof further reinforces unique atmosphere. The width of Endo is also utilized on the allowing increased functionality. The passenger seat can be freely in four directions, front, left and right.

This movement allows for usable space next to the passenger as well as improved access to the The rear seats show functionality with back that can be rotated in several directions and it is extremely simple to the interior to the users needs, it be four seats, three with a table or two seats increased luggage space. In way, Endo can be adapted to the hectic and rapidly changing of urban families of the future.

Audi Shooting Brake

Audi is unveiling a new highlight in the compact segment at the Tokyo Show: the Shooting Brake is a study vehicle offering a trailblazing interpretation of Audi’s formal idiom, blending the dynamism of a sports car with a new of spaciousness and greater functionality. its powerful 250 bhp, 3.2-litre engine and quattro permanent drive, the Shooting Brake produces a quality of road that in every respect up to its visual impact. The study sprints from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.0 seconds, and its top speed is electronically at 250 km/h.

As is typical of every study car, in addition to its qualities the Shooting Brake features a raft of technical for Tokyo. These include the damping system Audi ride, an evolutionary version of system plus with screen monitor and character and the new LED headlight technology.


A into a new segment: the Audi Brake Concept represents an new departure in design terms. The of this coupé, measuring m long by 1.84 m wide but just 1.35 m tall, it out unequivocally as a paragon of the latest design, yet countless innovative demonstrate how this repository of has taken a decisive evolutionary forward.

Even when seen in the mirror, the Shooting Brake reveals at first glance a end that is characterised by the striking radiator grille with horizontal slats in chrome. As on the Le Mans quattro super car study, the four-ring brand is located above the single-frame the surface of which is not interrupted by the plate surround, either.

The shape at the front – further by prominent air inlets at the sides – and the cut of the clear-glass headlights give the its decidedly forceful, dynamic A presence that echoes the front-end design of the current A4 models in the DTM and refines the visionary RSQ study. A further element from motor sport, the grille, is the aluminium diffuser, guides the airflow beneath the car precision.

Viewed side-on, and concave surfaces create a interplay of light and shadow. The lines lower down the body give the vehicle a flat look. Typically for the Audi design approach, the and dynamic line structure the of the vehicle body into a defined, sporty architecture. The of the large body panels and the window strip below the roof line are equally features of a sports car.

The contoured wheel arches the powerful, road-centred proportions. The double-spoke wheels originate quattro GmbH and are a further version of the design created for Audi’s current top sports the RS 4.

One new element in the portfolio of design is the upward swoop behind the side window. This, with the wide C-post, the prominent rear end. is where the visual emphasis of the Brake Concept is to be found: the trapezoid of the rear window and the arching, convex panel are the opposite extreme to the flat end and give the vehicle a crouched as if ready to leap.

The horizontal lights, extending well to the sides, in conjunction with the line along the lower of the window, accentuate the horizontal across the rear end of the vehicle. The compartment lid itself extends up into the roof surface. permits a wide opening and optimum access to the luggage

Beneath the flush, integral there is a large-area diffuser as at the to channel the airflow beneath the such that drag is and surface grip enhanced. The system’s two large tailpipes at the powerful engine inside the Brake Concept.

The interior

The design of the Audi Shooting Concept exudes a decidedly flair. This impression is by the low seat position, in typical car style, the high centre and the clear, expansive composition of the panel. The short sports-style lever with its tactile together with the wide in the doors and the pedals with surface, combine form and with unprecedented ergonomic

The attractive appearance of the interior and of each individual detail is the of select material quality and a finish of the highest standard.

The clearly structured surfaces of the panel, roof and door are clad in high-tech synthetic The two grey shades and the surface provide a contrasting look and On the other hand, the surface of the console, the inside door and the surrounds on the air outlets, like the itself, have an ‘Electric pearl-effect finish.

The instrument as the driver’s focus of attention, is by a semi-circular cover, an element consciously echoes the design of sporty Audi models. Two analogue circular instrument display the engine speed and speed, and the large-format display of the Information System provides information.

The multifunction steering with flattened underside is a to the wheel installed in two of the most Audi sports cars built – the

Le Mans quattro and the RS 4.

Above the centre console discreetly towards the driver, two air outlets with star-pattern bracket a chronograph that can information in either analogue or form, as preferred.

This uses an organic polymer that appreciably improves and ease of reading. Compared the conventional liquid crystal (LCD), an organic light diode (OLED) monitor is easier to read, above all the sun shining on it and when viewed at an The content displayed on the monitor can be made out from an angle of

170 degrees. Other advantages of are its shallow installation depth and short response times, as as much lower energy than LCD displays.

The MMI terminal of the DVD and navigation system plus, optical and acoustic route has been redesigned. The ergonomically architecture of keypad and display is by the successful Multi Media configuration in the Audi A8. Here, the features an array of new functions as innovative 3D screen navigation touch screen monitor and recognition that permits inputs using a PAD pen.


The Audi Shooting Concept sets new standards in the sports vehicle segment in ample space for all occupants. to the special shape of the tail there is both more for rear passengers and more in the luggage compartment. The wide angle of the rear doors and the easy entry function for the seats provide easy to the rear seats. There is an amount of knee room at the thanks to the wheelbase of 2.47 m.

The compartment of the Audi Shooting Concept is quite sufficient for substantial transport requirements, a capacity of 255 litres with the seat back upright and as as 730 litres with the seat folded down.

The steering adjustable in reach and height as as the driver’s seat with the adjustment options ensure an seating position for drivers of any build.

The ergonomic design of the seats in the Audi Shooting Concept combines ample with good lateral The shot-through textile upholstery in blue for the seat surface and back, flanked with grey hues on either provides a sporty, elegant

Engine and transmission

Powerful and – the power unit of the Shooting Concept is a transversally installed V6 engine with a displacement of 3.2 which has already thrilled thousands of customers in currently the sporty versions of the A3 and TT car lines.

The engine is equally suited to a distinctly sporty vehicle as the Shooting Brake Concept to its outstanding torque and power

Its maximum output is 184 kW (250 at 6,200 rpm, and the torque is particularly impressive, peaking at 320 Nm 2,500 and 3,000 rpm.

The basis for forceful acceleration in all ranges and fleet-footed sprints is engine in conjunction with the closely spaced 6-speed that paves the way for crisp, gearshifts.

The performance figures of the Brake Concept 3.2 are correspondingly it accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in six seconds and reaches a top speed of 250 (governed).

Throttle valve is designed for an exceptionally agile, engine response to accelerator movements.

The dual-branch exhaust both helps to cut emissions and a very presentable sound. Audi’s acoustics specialists created sonorous sound in case, which, without unpleasant or even obtrusive in any way at perfectly reflects the sporting of this very special unit in acoustic terms.

The Brake Concept is equipped quattro permanent four-wheel A hydraulic multi-plate clutch the distribution of power between the and rear wheels.

This solution is indeed particularly for cars with the engine transversely, incorporating all the well-known of an Audi quattro.

Offering a situation-specific distribution of propulsive between all four wheels, drive guarantees maximum and, as a result, optimum at all times. At the same time are still ample reserves for cornering forces in the interest of safety and directional stability.

the engine at the front and the four-wheel-drive clutch at the rear, axle distribution benefits accordingly. this weight distribution is to the excellent driving stability and handling of the Audi Shooting Concept.

The chassis

The second key to its dynamics on the road is its highly suspension with McPherson layout at the front and the new four-link suspension at the rear. Large wheels with size R18 tyres promote driving fun and

The dynamic suspension is designed for agile handling with a standard of stability, and makes a distinct pleasure. An additional is the high standard of ride as befits a car in a segment further up the

The Audi Shooting Brake features ceramic brakes ensure the appropriate braking Compared with conventional discs, these not only four times longer, but offer high braking even when driving at the as well as maximum resistance to

The significant reduction in weight leads to advantages in terms of and handling thanks to reduced masses.

The electromechanical steering speed-dependent power assistance is one of the keys to optimum handling. It optimum steering feedback minimal sensitivity to excitation the road surface, and operates on far energy.

The particular strengths of the suspension layout stem the functional separation of longitudinal and forces. This provides a standard of lateral rigidity in the of optimum dynamics and driving and, at the same time, the suspension relatively soft in order to improve the standard of comfort.

Separate springs and absorbers provide the necessary support. The shock absorbers are right next to the wheels, space for a particularly generous width in the luggage compartment. A anti-roll bar is secured to the axle by means of extremely stiff mounts; it reduces body effectively and has a positive influence on the of lateral force that can be and thus on the vehicle’s handling.

An technology is used for the shock Audi magnetic ride. of the conventional damper fluid, a fluid is used – in other a fluid whose viscosity can be by an electromagnetic field. This enables to damping characteristic to be electronically at will by applying a to the electromagnets.

Audi uses property to supply the correct forces in every driving thus optimising ride and road behaviour. A computer with sensor technology the prevailing driving situation in a of milliseconds. The driver can choose two driving programs depending on they want to drive in a sporty style – in which the magnetorheological fluid exhibits viscosity – or more with the on ride comfort.

Lighting and electronics

Visible innovation is to be beneath the covers of the headlights and lights of the Audi Shooting Concept – this is where a formal idiom and trailblazing come together. The design of the elements and the night design give the overall appearance of latest study car an utterly new accent.

The design of the decidedly main headlights, using LED is particularly eye-catching. Bionics, in words drawing design from nature, has been at here. The light unit has a reminiscent of an open pine Reflector shells arranged one behind the other each the light from one diode, a high-luminosity, even form of light.

By contrast the high-beam located on the inside, are blossom-shaped. The lights, in the form of narrow strips, delineate the lower of the headlight housings and the exterior providing prominent signals and visual accents. The daytime lights naturally also use LED the merits of which include low energy consumption, over and their attractive design.

The lights of this study, deep into the vehicle likewise have a highly design. The transparent red covers provide a clear view of the LED The diodes actually cast light forwards onto the which distributes it back to the through a mask in the shape of a cloverleaf. This results in an appearance for both the rear and the brake lights. The turn again take the form of horizontal strips.

New navigation

There are electronic innovations in areas of the vehicle, too. An version of the DVD screen-based navigation plus offers special functions and a new screen presentation. uses touch screen for the first time here. The can activate the basic architecture of the MMI directly by touching the function in the display.

The new system generation permits operation of the navigation by direct input, e.g. of via the monitor. Instead of having to them one letter at a time the menu, the driver can simply them on the monitor with finger. Alternatively, a remote with pressure-sensitive surface can be to make inputs, as on a PDA computer. The monitor pops up out of a slot the centre display at the push of a

The special feature is that the is not only capable of reading in but can also identify a wide of scripts. The computer is equally to read the conventional Latin and Japanese characters.

Another new is the scope provided for choosing two different navigation modes. who prefer the ‘Tour’ mode can the route on the monitor from an enhanced, three-dimensional bird’s-eye The driver can take photos of with a camera at the front of the car and these as visual route

Activating the ‘Sport’ mode optical information above all via the display in the instrument cluster. As as spoken instructions, there are arrows to point the way. in the ‘Tour’ mode, the driver can up a further option that like an electronic rally and makes the journey an end in itself: the driver feels the urge to along a particularly challenging, route, they can call up an itinerary from the computer. following the proposed route, as as receiving directions they are advised on the best gear to and the speed at which to take the bend.

Daihatsu Be-Go

The Daihatsu is the production version of the Daihatsu 4×4 which I’ve blogged before. From concept to in such a short time. The 4X4 was shown at the 2005 Frankfurt Show, and months later already shown as a production car at the Tokyo Motor Show.

The Be-Go is a compact 4X4, and likely replace the Daihatsu in it’s car line-up. That we’ll see it on Malaysian roads one day as a to replace the Perodua Kembara, was based on the current Daihatsu So this post should you guys quite a bit.

The Daihatsu Be-Go is powered by a 1.5 DOHC 16 valve DVVT They’ve called it the “TOPAZ” This is a newly developed also seen in the Daihatsu ZZ. This engine makes at 6000rpm and 140Nm of torque at The engine is mated to a full 4WD system with a centre lock. The compact SUV has a kerb of 1190kg.

Interior looks there’s a wooden trim steering there which I’m not whether will reach the versions. The meter panel doesn’t differ much the 2nd generation Toyota RAV4.

The Be-Go will go on sale in and subsequently the rest of the world next year. It’s not yet whether Perodua will use as the Kembara Replacement Model. But if do, it’s sure to sell hot-cakes here in Malaysia.
